Book Review: The Dog-Eared Diary-A Chrissy the Schih Tzu Mystery

Book Review: The Dog-Eared Diary-A Chrissy the Schih Tzu Mystery

The Dog-Eared Diary is a fun, fast-paced mystery with an entertaining story. It held my interest and I didn’t want to put it down. The characters were charming and I fell in love with little Chrissy the Shih Tzu immediately. Diane Wing portrayed the bond between Autumn and Chrissy realistically. Their relationship is a great example of the importance of the human and animal bond. The Dog-Eared Diary: A Chrissy the Shih Tzu Mystery is my first foray into the cozy mystery genre. I’m a dog-obsessed dog mom and thoroughly enjoyed this book. I hadn’t heard of the genre before I was given the opportunity to review this book. I’m hooked! I’m excited to dive into the first book in the series and anxiously awaiting more adventures with Autumn and Chrissy.
 
I was provided a copy of this book for free and I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.

About the Book

In this second installment in the series, Chrissy digs up clues to help Autumn solve a historical disappearance and a modern-day murder mystery

Autumn Clarke is getting her life back to normal with the help of her extraordinary shih tzu, Chrissy, when the death of a local philanthropist reveals the man’s dark family secrets, as well as unexpected ties to Autumn. When Chrissy discovers a dog-eared diary in the dead man’s family home, Autumn discovers that things in the Clarke family are not quite as they seem.

Can Autumn interpret the hidden clues in the dog-eared diary to crack the most puzzling disappearance in Knollwood history? Are the recent murders connected to the past? Is Chrissy more insightful than Autumn realized?
